DBCHS Pets of the week, October 3

This week our featured pets are Rocco and Ariel.

Rocco is a handsome seven-month-old classic tabby. He was surrendered to the humane society because his owner did not have time for a pet. Friendly, cuddly, and gregarious all describe Rocco. He is residing in one of our kitty condos, sharing space nicely with several other adult cats. This amiable fellow will make a great addition to most any home looking for a great feline friend!

Rocco

Ariel is a beautiful one-year-old hound mix. She’s a pretty tri-color and looks like a Walker Coonhound mix and weighs about 45 lbs. Ariel is friendly and gets along fine with other dogs. She does lack a little confidence and would benefit from a new family where she can have consistent handling and receive positive reinforcement. Ariel would love a large fenced yard or a home in the country where she can get plenty of exercise. Come meet this lovely girl and see if you are a perfect match!

October is Adopt-A-Shelter Dog month!! This annual event encourages people to save lives and enhance their own by adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue group. At the DBCHS we have many beautiful and loving dogs and puppies that are waiting to find their perfect forever home. To celebrate this
